Boulder (AP) The University of Colorado's new president
is cutting ten positions in his first day on the job, estimating they'll save the school $824,000 a year. Former U.S. Senator Hank Brown Monday cut six vacant jobs and two
positions held by people preparing to retire, or who already have.
Two other jobs vacated by resignations won't be filled.
Brown says the savings include salaries and benefits, and will help C.U. deal with ongoing budget constraints.
The 65–year–old Brown was appointed C.U. president in April, following betsy hoffman's announcement that she would resign over the summer.
Brown retired from congress in 1997, and now oversees a
four–campus, 49,000 student system.
